Go for a lovely stroll through Herrenberg’s historic Old Town, with its lovingly restored craftsman’s houses and venerable buildings. The Stiftskirche Herrenberg church is the landmark of the city. The late-Gothic hall church is known by locals as the “Glucke” or mother-hen, because of its dominant position on a hill.

The 216 metre high TV and viewing tower was opened in 1956, and represents a new era in tower building, both structurally and architecturally. It also ranks as one of Germany’s cultural monuments. It is about 35 minutes from the H+ Hotel Stuttgart Herrenberg by car.
As one of the largest baroque buildings in Germany, and one of the best-preserved examples of its kind in Europe, Ludwigsburg Residential Palace is well worth a visit.

On top of this, princely apartments, museums, and a palace theatre without parallel leave visitors to marvel open-mouthed.
